101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright is joined by Steven Parr of American Ground Radio, discussing the stories of two, true American heroes: Erin McCarty's father John, who won the Bronze Star for his bravery in World War II at the battle of Okinawa and Parr's father Tom, a West Point grad who later fought as a company leader - and never lost a man - in Vietnam.

After RJW tells the story of John McCarty's heroism as a Marine, Parr talks about his father's time at the United States Military Academy and his ongoing loyalty to that institution, including the traditions, the mentorship to West Point's student soldiers and their family's emotionally moving first trip to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.

Hear Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty weekday mornings from 6 til 9 on 101.7 / 710 KEEL, or by downloading the free KEEL app, presented by Office Furniture Source.
